Investigating Environmental Science and Field Biology
Environmental Science is an elective for juniors and seniors and has been modifying its approach to teaching science. The result has been a class that is more inquiry based and field oriented. Materials needed are soil, water and forest testing equipment. The goals are to increase the technological skills of the students and bring a more modern and realistic setting to the classroom laboratory. The grant will allow students to increase their observational, analytical and critical thinking skills. This grant will enrich and supplement previous NPEF grants in the biological sciences.
